MANILA, Philippines -- Yet another video showing student Paula Jamie Salvosa is making the rounds online, after her on-cam tirade against a lady guard in November went viral.

This time, Salvosa gamely makes an appearance in a music video inspired by the worldwide hit "Gangnam Style."

Put together by HeadingUp Productions and Filipino-Canadian singer Mikey Bustos, "Opo Pinoy Style" puts its own spin on the popular Korean music video by featuring practices, eccentricities, food and locations identified with Filipinos.

Uploaded on Friday on the video-sharing site YouTube, "Opo Pinoy Style" now has over 16,000 views, as of writing.

At one point in the video, Salvosa appears with Bustos, as she mouths "amalayer".

The term as a buzzword among netizens stems from the speech affectations of Salvosa in saying "I'm a liar" in the viral video of her berating a lady guard at the Santolan station of LRT Line 2.

As the video circulated online, the hashtag "#amalayer" and the word "LRT" trended locally on micro-blogging site Twitter, where Salvosa got flak from netizens.

Salvosa would later appear on live TV to address the alleged cyberbullying directed at her.

It was also on the same social networking site where Salvosa's audition video to become a MYX VJ made the rounds.

The "Amalayer" incident has since spawned several video parodies online, a song with the term in its lyrics, and impersonations of the student on TV gag shows.
